- Directed by: Felix Van Groeningen
- Cast: Steve Carell, Timothée Chalamet, Maura Tierney
David (Carell) is a successful freelance journalist whose son Nic (Chalamet) becomes dependent on meth. True-life story of family breakdown, capturing the never-ending cycle of rehab and relapse; handsomely photographed but repetitive and a bit formulaic, but Chalamet is outstanding.

The classic WWII escape drama, featuring a fine ensemble cast trying to get out of the Nazi stalag. McQueen's 'Cooler King' became a screen icon, particularly in the scene where he attempts to jump over a field of barbed wire fences on a motorbike.

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

Despite living in the Mad Max-style nightmare of Apocalypseburg, Emmet (Pratt) is still his cheery self—until his friends are kidnapped by the alien queen (Haddish). There are lots of good jokes and plenty of fun, but it’s not quite up to the magical original.
